    Has anyone else applied to do a History BA - with or without study abroad/year in placement?

    I applied to do just a straight 3 year course, but I might change this once I get there. My offer is A*AA, but I received an email from Exeter about a week ago saying that they will still guarantee me a space, even if I miss out on the A*. Has anyone else had this?

    Hi yes I have! I received an offer for History BA with a year abroad. I am currently studying the IB, but they've emailed with a similar offer (a lower overall point score of 34 and one HL grade lower). Do you think you will put it as your firm?

    Wow that's a coincidence, that's what I'm currently planning on putting down as my firm and insurance! I'm going on applicant days for both for a final look, but both looked really good on the open day. Have you applied for a year abroad at Southampton?

    No, I haven’t applied for year abroad but may do at the end of 1st year. The good thing about Southampton is that they offer a semester abroad instead of the whole year which, to me, sounds quite appealing. I went to Southampton’s applicant day and I really like it. I’d be happy there but Exeter is where I have my heart set on 😊
